Thousands of people along the fondamenta and the embarkations greeted the passage of the procession of boats which started at Punta della Dogana and crossed the Grand Canal. After the usual raising of oars in front of the
Rialto Bridge, the multitude of colourful boats, each one “dressed up” with a different theme, from the rooster to the gull, from dragon to dolphin, headed for the grand finale in Cannaregio.

At noon, the waiting explosion of the “Pantegana” that, from its back, has shot hundreds of confetti and streamers in the sky between the joyous applause of the audience.
